Dramatic and clear explanation of how a vehicle can turn a corner keeping the wheels from skidding because the differnential is at work.
Ken Smith sez: You've got to admire Jam Handy; not many producers could make a film about car differentials that's as easy-to-understand and as visually interesting as this. The film's opening -- which uses motorcycle stunt riders as an analogy for "cornering" -- is kind of oblique, but then the narration and scale models kick in and the JHO is in its glory. Well done.
Good stunt riding (Police on motorcycles in formation) .

Subject: Let's add another rod...
Soon, the narrator comes in about the ability to turn on precision, and a fascinating history about the axle is shown, and then details about how the axle works in a car. While this may sound boring, it's told in a quite direct and entertaining way.
But it's interesting how Jem Handy obviously put something in front of a drab subject to make it more palatable. Even otherwise, this film is reccomended.
